this is beautifully done and should have scored much higher

I gave this a 10. I'm glad, at least, it finished with a score over 6.0, although I think it should have been much higher. Well seen, well done!

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Fabulous everything - composition, focus, light, story! Not much left to say really!

Critical stuff: Nothing at all.

Overall: One of the best pigeon shots I've seen - and there are some good ones!

This a GREAT capture, and one of my top 10 images for the FS. Love the B&W processing, and the DOF here... wonderful. But most of all, I love the story in this image.

I love this one, very well captured, the focus is perfect and the man in the background completes the photo.
